Cataract treatment

Your eye specialist has told you that you have a cataract(s). This booklet gives you information that will help you to decide whether to have cataract surgery. You might want to discuss it with a relative or carer. Before you have the operation you will be asked to sign a consent form, so it is important that you understand this booklet before you decide to have surgery.

Because of the length of this booklet, it is available as a digital download only.
